Optical Properties of Functional Polymers and Nano Engineering Applications, Hardback Book


Optical Properties of Functional Polymers and Nano Engineering Applications provides a basic introduction to the optical properties of polymers, as well as a systematic overview of the latest developments in their nano engineering applications.

Covering an increasingly important class of materials relevant not only in academic research but also in industry, this comprehensive text:Considers the advantages of the liquid gradient refractive index (L-GRIN) lenses over the conventional solid lensesExplores the electrochemistry of photorefractive polymers, the molecular structure of commonly used polymers, and various 3D holographic displaysDiscusses gene detection using the optical properties of conjugated polymersHighlights the physics of fluorescence in photoluminescent polymers, and energy and electron transfer mechanismsIntroduces conventional polymer ion sensors based on the optical sensors of conjugated polymers prepared by click chemistry reactionsExplains colorimetric visual detection of ions by donor-acceptor chromophoresDescribes optical sensors based on fluorescent polymers and for the detection of explosives and metal ion analytesAddresses holographic polymer-dispersed liquid crystal technology, its optical setups, and its applications in organic lasersPresents cutting-edge research on electrochromic devices, along with new concepts, prototypes, commercial products, and future prospectsDemonstrates new techniques for creating nanoscale morphologies through self-assembly, which affect the optical properties of the functional polymersOptical Properties of Functional Polymers and Nano Engineering Applications emphasizes the importance of nano engineering in improving the fundamental optical properties of the functional polymers, elaborating on high-level research while thoroughly explaining the underlying principles.
